Don't install Zope/Plone from the repository unless it's just for a 
temporary test drive. Always either use the all-in-one Linux installer 
or build from source.


You should apt-get remove zope2.9 right away or you may see port 
conflicts with your other attempts to build it.

You should also note that the Ubuntu repository version of Zope is *not* 
the right version for the current release of Plone as of today. :)

Maybe cut and paste your error?

You should be able to http://zope.server:8080/manage and a) see if you 
have a plone site, and b) what its name is.
